I am in the very early stages of creating a book. The ones who are assisting me with this are people who are currently incarcerated. --
Have you ever thought what you would say if you could speak to your former self? Would you tell yourself to keep on the same track? Do the same things? Make the same decisions?
I have asked my friends and friends of those friends, to write just that. Write a letter, a note, story, poem etc. to your former self. Having to relive what you've gone through in your life, and seeing it written down on paper, is a very surprisingly emotional trip. A deep form of self therapy, if you will. Many who thought it would be a simple task to perform, quickly realized that it was quite the opposite. Outcomes are very somber, but very thankful.
--Supporting yourself while trying to write and publish your own book, is extremly difficult. I am asking for assistance to do so.
- Paper, envelopes, stamps to send to the inmates.
- Printer paper and ink.
- Support for myself while working on this project.
